No way that I'm aware of, to erase the firmware.
I have just checked and you do have the latest firmware.
Might be worth reporting this as being a bug to them.
All the best

It's 11/01/2018. That was the latest version I could find on their website.
Is there a later version? If that's the one I'm supposed to have, Is there
way of erasing all settings and forcing a full factory reset perhaps?
